(Wells Fargo, Affordable Homes, UTRGV, STC, City of RGC, Roma
, PSJA, La Joya, and McAllen, Independent School Districts, Lonestar
National Bank, BBVA, Goodwill Industries, Security Service Federal
Credit Union) school districts and municipalities, who have impacted
3000 families by completing tax returns at no cost. The amount of money
returned to these families in our two county area, Starr and Hidalgo,
We talked to families about basic budgeting, opening savings accounts
and suggested they think about setting goals on what the family needs
most over the next couple of years. The majority of our clients have
realistic goals for utilizing their tax returns. Taking care of bills (especially
medical) and buying books for a college student are commonly
listed as priorities. The United Way of South Texas has spearheaded this
program for 5 years and has experienced growth every year. We will
continue to raise awareness as we prepare for the 2016 tax season which
will open in January 2017.
